Question Groin pain, Swollen Inguinal Lymph Nodes

I am a 20 year old UPS employee and do a lot of heavy lifting on a daily basis and have been plagued with groin pain since last september. The pain is more of a dull ache all around the right inguinal ligament and is real inconsistant. sometimes i will feel fine other times its bothersome but im functional, and most recently it has become just painful. My lymph nodes have been swollen(both sides all along the inguinal) for a while now but not knowing much about what those lumps were i just figured they were knots in my groin muscles or something. Over the course of this problem i have been repeatedly checked for an inguinal hernia with nothing there, its been called a groin strain and a hip flexor problem.

Today i went to the doctor because as i said before the problem has been more intense lately because i changed positions at work to a more physical responsability, an the doctor said i had a little bit of fluid by the right testicle. he didnt check for hernia, but instead concentrated on the lymph nodes and the fluid and called it epididimytis(spelling?). so i just looked that up and it seems influenced by sexual behavior and has some crazy symptoms like discharge and pain during urination/ejaculation that i am not experiancing. unfortunetly for me:-( i have been with the same girl for 4-5 years and the plumbing works just fine. also the symptoms include pain generally in the testicle region but my pain is only in the bottom part of the inguinal ligament with no discomfort in the genitals. so my question is, is there anything else that could cause swollen inguinal lymph nodes and annoying pain between my hip and genitals that isnt epididimytis? i honestly dont think i have that and i now have to take 4 weeks of antibiotics to prove to my doc that it will still bother me then as it does right now.

any thoughts or comments would be much appreciated and i thank you ahead of time.(i also apolagize for all my spelling miscues and my wonderful run on sentences with the lack of grammer)
